Something Special

I can't begin to describe the home of Chris and Jude. But this is what I wrote in my email to the other sketchers:

 "If you love drama, whimsy, craftsmanship, gargoyles, art glass and optical illusions, don't miss this one. Chris built the place himself and describes the style as ecclesiastical. The setting is also dramatic,  perched on a hill overlooking shipping lanes in the distance. You will know you are on the right track when you pass a Roman ruins on the property." There was something to surprise and delight at every turn. I chose the downstairs bath, but due to poor planning, only got a piece of it.
When the clock struck Happy Hour, the sketchers migrated to Ott & Murphy's in downtown Langley for refreshments. This is their lovely Wine Flight presentation, served outside on the sidewalk in the sunshine along with olive torte, cheeses, crackers, nuts,  etc. Every single wine in the flight was wonderful.
